Subsidies, Endogenous Technical Efficiency And The Measurement Of Productivity Growth

Abstract

The impacts of program subsidy on productivity growth is investigated in this study Mundlak's concept of endogeneity is applied to technical efficiency and generalized within a dual framework. Technology is described by an aggregate cost function while technical efficiency is conditional on a vector of state variables. Empirical evidence from the U.S. dairy sector supports the hypothesis that protectionism, in the form of program subsidy, is the source of considerable technical inefficiencies.
